BOARD OF SELECTMEN 




ARTHUR J. PALLESCHI, Chairman 
ROBERT E. DONELAN RICHARD CHAMBERS 



To the Citizens of the Town of Swampscott: 

Your Board of Selectmen is pleased to submit to their fellow citizens 
this report for the year ending- December 31, 1972. 

Once again, as in years past, the Board of Selectmen has received the 
cooperation and support of the residents of the Town of Swampscott in our 
every effort. We are also greatly indebted to all of the Town officials, de- 
partments, department heads, and committees for their cooperation and 
assistance, for without it our effectiveness would have been greatly reduced. 

The Swampscott Police Department, under the expert direction of Chief 
William J. Carlin, had adjusted well to the turnover in personnel due to 
retirements and resignations. Proof of this is the fine police work being 
carried on relative to the prevention of several serious crimes which were 
attempted in Swampscott recently. Chief Carlin and his department have 
assisted the Board this past year in making many difficult decisions relative 
to traffic and road safety problems. 

Chief Walter M. Champion, Jr., of the Swampscott Fire Department, 
has retired from the Department. Yet the Board of Selectmen are confident 



24 



that a qualified replacement will emerge from the ranks of the department 
and that the excellent work of the department will continue. 

With the cooperation of the Board of Public Works, the Selectmen 
have continued their efforts to bring funds into Swampscott through the 
TOPICS Program for the improvement of traffic safety hazards in Town. 

Due to the emergence of several new safety hazards, the Board has 
requested changes in priorities within the TOPICS Program to combat these 
problems and have been successful in their efforts. 

Several new installations have been made to promote better pedestrian 
and vehicular safety with many more contemplated. 

Under the Emergency Employment Act, which was brought to Swamp- 
scott last year, the Board continued to seek funds for the employment of 
residents temporarily unemployed. The last of the funds having been 
utilized, several of these employees were accepted into the system as full- 
time regular employees, to fill vacancies due to retirements and resignations. 

The Board of Selectmen, through application to the United States De- 
partment of Housing and Urban Development, Federal Insurance Adminis- 
tration, obtained the right for all residents of Swampscott to purchase 
subsidized flood insurance. Swampscott was the first community in the area 
to make the program available to its residents. 

The hot lunch program for the elderly has continued to be a success. 
Several new proposals have been implemented through the Selectmen's 
Office. We again thank all of the volunteers who assist in the program, 
as well as the Public School Administration, for their help and guidance. 

The Selectmen have conducted hearings regarding cable television in 
Swampscott. No affirmative decisions have been made, except a realization 
that continued research into the possibilities of cable television for Swamp- 
scott must be conducted. 

The Selectmen made appointments to the newly created Recreation 
Commission. We feel that those who were appointed have done a fine job 
and will continue to do so. 

Also appointed were those members of the Police Station Building Needs 
Committee. A very business-like study was made with sound conclusions 
resulting. 

Ever increasing "Leash Law" problems confronted the Selectmen during 
the past year. Without the dedicated efforts of our Dog Officer, Mr. Ralph 
Fuller, the "leash law" certainly could not work, even to its present efficiency. 

Again the Selectmen have sought to improve street lighting in the com- 
munity. It is hoped that this action will reduce crime and improve safety 
conditions on our roads. 

Under the direction of our newly appointed Harbor Master, Charles 
Bickford, a more efficient and safer harbor has resulted. With the purchase 
of a Harbor Master's boat, we hope to see greater strides in this area. 



25 



During the past year the Selectmen established and appointed residents 
to the Municipal Electrical Study Committee. The Committee was established 
to study the feasibility of the Town owning and operating its own electric 
light plant. They have done an excellent job. 

Hearings were also conducted in the areas of improved postal service, 
better MBTA service, and a host of other ranging areas. 

The Christmas Decorations Committee, Fourth of July Committee, and 
Memorial Day Committee are once again to be congratulated. Although 
hampered by an ever decreasing budget and a lack of overall community 
support, they have all done a splendid job. 

The two positions which the Selectmen rely on most are that of Collective 
Bargaining Agent and Town Counsel. It is the earnest belief of this Board 
that we have two of the best men in these fields. 

Attorney Thomas Driscoll, our Collective Bargaining Agent, has worked 
long, difficult hours in an effort to work out the problems between labor 
and management. It has not been an easy year for collective bargaining, 
but with Mr. Driscoll's expert assistance the Selectmen have made great 
strides in this area. 

Our Town Counsel, Attorney Timothy Davern, has been called upon 
this past year to aid the Board in treating ever increasing and ever complex 
legal problems. His work-load has increased, yet he continues to offer the 
same dedication and thoroughness which have become his trademark. 

A special note of thanks to our Clerk, Miss Katherine Donlon, to whom 
this Board is most grateful. 

This report was meant to be but an outline of the activities of your 
Board of Selectmen during the past year. There are many other areas with 
which the Board deals. 

The Board of Selectmen renews its pledge to you, the citizens of the 
Town of Swampscott, the finest of communities, to make every effort to con- 
tinue to provide quality government for all.

TOWN CLERK 



OLIVER W. COUGHLIN, Town Clerk 

TOWN WARRANT 
MONDAY, MARCH 20, 1972

QUESTION No. 1 

Shall Chapter Three, Section One of the Town Charter be amended, as 
recommended by the Charter Commission, by striking out said Section as it 
presently exists and inserting in place thereof the following? 

Section One. The Board of Selectmen shall consist of three members who 
shall serve for three year staggered terms. Initially, at the annual Town Elec- 
tion in 1973, the voters of the Town shall elect one Selectman for three years, 
one Selectman for two years, and one Selectman for one year. The candidates' 
names shall be placed in alphabetical order on the ballot and the candidate 
receiving the largest number of votes shall be elected for three years, the candi- 
date receiving the second largest number of votes shall be elected for two years, 
and the candidate receiving the third largest number of votes shall be elected 
for one year. At each annual Town Election thereafter the voters j YES j 
shall elect one Selectman to serve for a three year term j j^q j 

Presently the charter provides for three Selectmen who are all elected for 
a one year term. The amendment would provide for one of the three Selectmen 
to be elected each year for a three year term. 



QUESTION No. 2 

Shall Chapter Three of the Town Charter be amended, as recommended 
by the Charter Commission, by adding a new Section Three thereto, as follows: 

Section Three. The School Committee shall consist of seven members, 
one of whom shall be a resident of and elected from each precinct and one 
from the Town At Large. 

In 1973, and each three years thereafter, the voters of the Town At Large 
shall elect an At Large member to serve for a three year term. 

In 1973, the voters from the Town At Large shall elect from the respec- 
tive residents in each precinct, one member to said Committee. From among 
those so elected, the two receiving the largest number of votes shall serve for 
three years, the two receiving the next largest number of votes shall serve for 
two years, and the two receiving the next largest number of votes shall serve 
for one year. 

At each annual Town Election thereafter, the voters from the Town At 
Large shall elect from each of the two precincts represented by School Com- 
mittee members whose terms are then expiring, a School Com- "j y^g j 
mittee member to serve for three years "j j^q j 

The present School Committee is composed of five members elected At 
Large for a staggered three year term, two-two-one. The amendment would 



28 



increase the membership to seven and provide that one of same would be a 
resident of and elected from each precinct and one from the Town At Large. 



QUESTION No. 3 

Shall the Charter be amended, as recommended by the Charter Commis- 
sion, by adding a new Section Four to Chapter Three of the Town Charter 
to provide for a new position of Executive Secretary/Town | YES | 
Accountant, as summarized below: |~NO | 

The Executive Secretary/Town Accountant would have significant tasks 
specifically assigned to him in order to facilitate the work of the Board of 
Selectmen. He would, among his tasks, do all the things presently performed 
by the Town Accountant and Secretary to the Board of Selectmen, whose 
positions would be abolished. 



QUESTION No. 4 

Shall Chapter Three of the Town Charter be amended, as recommended 
by the Charter Commission, by adding a new Section Five thereto, as follows? 

Section Five. There shall be a Recreation Commission established under 
the provisions of General Laws (Ter. Ed.) Chapter 45, Section 14 as amended, 
composed of seven members, all appointed by the Board of Selectmen, one to 
be appointed from each precinct and one to be appointed At Large. The Board 
of Selectmen shall initially appoint the At Large member and two precinct 
members for three year terms, two precinct members for two years terms, and 
two precinct members for a one year term. Thereafter, as their respective 
terms expire, the Board of Selectmen shall appoint succeeding j YES j 
members for three year terms f - NO ( 

The varied end miscellaneous Athletic Programs subsidized totally or 
partially by the Town, including the Summer Recreation Program, which have 
been under the Board of Public Works, in one form or another, have proved 
to be rather cumbersome and not realistically related to the primary function 
of said Board. The proposed amendment would create a Commission to perform 
these functions. 



QUESTION No. 5 

Shall Chapter Three of the Town Charter be amended, as recommended 
by the Charter Commission, by adding a new Section Six thereto, as follows: 

Section Six. The Board of Health shall be the Town Board authorized 
and directed to enforce all regulations and By-Laws relating to environmental 
control, and annually submit, for the consideration of the Town Meeting, such 
regulations and By-Laws as it deems proper to attain same, including, but not 
limited to matters concerning noise abatement, and the like, as provided in 
General Laws (Ter. Ed.) Chapter 40, Section 21, Paragraph j YES | 
(22), as amended I NO [ 

This amendment would give authority to the Board of Health to take 
maximum advantage of the areas relating to environmental control. 



29 



QUESTION No. 6 

Shall Chapter Two of the Town Charter be amended, as recommended by 
the Charter Commission, by adding a new section 5A thereto as follows: 

Section Five A. A Town Meeting member who has missed three (3) con- 
secutive sessions of Town Meeting may be removed by a 2/3 vote of the 
Town Meeting members of that precinct, convened for that | yES | 

P u 'P°« e PnO I 

This amendment would provide an inducement for punctual and regular 
attendance at Town Meeting. 



QUESTION No. 7 

Shall licenses be granted in this Town for the operation, | YES 
holding or conducting a game commonly called Beano? .... j

shall be obtained from the Board of Appeals under Article VI, 
Section 4.

quirements if any part of the lot fronts, at least for the requisite 
minimum number of feet, on a way.

(5) Maximum Floor Area Ratio (Ratio of gross floor area of build- 
ings to total square footage of land area of the Lot) : 1.0.

of the area, width, depth, shape, or grade of the lot or the use 
to which the lot is to be put, provided the lot was duly recorded 
by plan or by deed with the Registry of Deeds or was assessed 
as a separate parcel before the date of the passage of this amend-

individual lot may exceed any of the foregoing requirements pro- 
vided (i) any such lot is one of a group of lots committed to 
development in accordance with a Unified Plan. A Unified Plan 
is a plan created by a recorded declaration setting forth the de- 
velopment of such lots; and (ii) the percentage of all such lots 
covered by buildings, the floor area ratio of buildings to land on 
all such lots and number of dwelling units on all such lots does

be enclosed by a fence or wall adequate to conceal such facilities

Appeals, three to the Board of Selectmen, two to the Building Inspec- 
tor, three to the Board of Health, and one to Town Counsel.

ture to which such permit appertains is or becomes available for use 
under the permit. The Board of Appeals may extend the period of 
time for exercising rights under any permit granted by it without 
the necessity of a new or further application and public hearing 
thereon, unless the Board shall so require. 

10. Conditions on a Use Permit. 

a. Before granting a special permit for exceptions under this section, 
the Board of Appeals shall consider its probable effects on the 
neighborhood and the Town, and such exception shall be denied if 
in the judgment of the Board of Appeals it will tend substantially 
to derogate from the intent or purpose of this By-Law. 

b. The Board shall impose such appropriate conditions and safeguards 
in granting a permit as may be deemed necessary for the general 
welfare.

ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT 

KEITH A. CALLAHAN, Town Accountant 

In compliance with the provisions of General Laws, Chapter 41, Sections 
60 and 61, I herewith submit to you the annual report of the Accounting 
Department. 

Details of financial transactions of the town are set forth in the accom- 
panying- schedules: 

1. Balance Sheet. 

2. Appropriation Report. 

3. Schedule of Town Debt. 

4. Schedule of Cash Received and Disbursed. 

5. List of vendors who were paid $2000.00 or more in 1972. 

Section 4B of Chapter 40 of the General Laws, was amended in 1972, to 
require that the Town Accountant post a list of all contracts with individuals 
cumulatively in excess of $2000.00 with the Town Clerk. The list is included 
in this year's report. In future years it is not my present intention to show 
such a list in the town report. Interested parties could examine the list in the 
Clerk's Office.

BOARD OF ASSESSORS 



GORDON BOREK, Chairman 



ANTHONY PIERRE, Secretary 



ERNEST MANCHIN 



The Board of Assessors herewith submits its annual report to our fellow 
townspeople for the year 1972. 

Since the inception of the present Board in 1965, unanimity has been a 
vital ingredient of the success it has enjoyed in discharging its sworn duties 
of maintaining fair and equitable assessment practices. 

Though the tax burden has been distributed equally in accordance with 
real estate valuation ratios, the tax rate continues to soar each year. Pri- 
marily, this is due to the fact we are the third smallest land area community 
in the Commonwealth, and are basically residential in nature. Growth has 
been almost non-existant. Thus, we do not find any relief from increased 
spending at local, county and state levels. 

The financial plight confronting Swampscott has continually been brought 
to the attention of the Townspeople by this Board. To reiterate them would 
only be redundant — as the facts clearly speak for themselves. For example, 
approximately twenty-five per cent of our real estate is wholly or partially 
exempt from taxation through some form of statutory exemptions. Resi- 
dential personal property has also been removed from the taxation rolls by 
the legislature, this amounts to, approximately, a loss of $862,300. in revalu- 
ation to the Town of Swampscott. 

Again, we state that unless the citizens of the Commonwealth, including 
those residing in Swampscott, reach a balance point between their desires, 
needs and available resources, the tax rate will continue to escalate drama- 
tically. Swampscott will rapidly become a community where only the affluent 
may reside. This is not too far away from realization if we continue our 
current course since our tax rate has climbed $31 00 per thousand in just 
six short years. Austerity and regionalization should not be looked upon 
as profane words but rather as a means of our possible financial salvation. 

Statutory exemptions, as created by the legislature and over which there 
is no local control, also continues to escalate year after year. In 1972, the 
total dollar value of these exemptions were $122,825.00 based on 207 quali- 
fying elderly, 18 widows, 232 veterans, 16 indigent and hardship and 4 blind. 

The Board of Assessors submits all figures used to determine the tax 
rate for 1972 at $63.50 per thousand:

ROBERT J. SOTIROS, Assistant Town Engineer 
Acting Administrative Assistant and Secretary 

MAJOR PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS 

SANITARY SEWER EXTENSIONS PERFORMED 
BY PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEES: 

Phillips Beach Avenue Little's Point 



The above cost includes drilling and blasting; excavation and materials; 
laser beam which was used for line and grade. Sewer Assessments have been 
made according to State Statute. 



The cost for the Prospect Avenue drain includes drilling and blasting, 
excavation and materials. In 1971 the Prospect Avenue to Aspen Road drain 
was not constructed due to the fact that the bids exceeded the appropriation. 
In 1972 the Department of Public Works installed the drain well within the 
1971 appropriation. 85% of the excavation was solid ledge. 

'The Fuller Avenue to Millett Lane drain was finally completed. The only 
cost to the Town for this project was wages for Public Works employees. 

The Marshall and Orient Court brooks were chlorinated throughout the 
bathing season; as well as Stacey Brook, which was shared in a 50-50 basis 
with the City of Lynn. 

By using the laser beam to establish line and grade, only one engineer 
is required to be on the job; without the beam, three engineers are used to 
establish line and grade. Also, the beam is more accurate than old conven- 
tional methods. 

HIGHWAY — CHAPTER 90 ROAD WORK: 

This road work is shared on a 50% State, 25% County and 25% Town 
basis. Arbutus Road, Allen Road, Farragut Road, Francis Road, Hillside

Avenue, Humphrey Street (Puritan Road to Commonwealth Avenue), Huron 
Street, Minerva Street, Mostyn Street and Ocean View Road (base) were all 
resurfaced under this program, at a total cost of $40,000. The actual total 
cost to the Town was $10,000 which is only $1,000 per road. 

The Board of Public Works has enjoyed the cooperation of Mr. Jacob 
Berkover, District 5 Chief Highway Engineer of the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment of Public Works, who incidentally is a "Swampscotter," in all matters 
regarding Chapter 90 and other State Public Works programs. 

ROADS RESURFACED AND/OR RECONSTRUCTED WITH TOWN FUNDS 



The Public Works Department has a program of resurfacing six (6) roads 
a year which are not eligible for funds under Chapter 90 at a cost of $2,500. 
This program along with the Chapter 90 program insures that the majority of 
the roads in Town are in A-l condition. 

SIDEWALK AND BERM CURB PROGRAM: 



Due to road construction and damages occurred during snow plowing, it 
becomes necessary to replace berm curbs and repair sidewalks. A total of 
4 500 feet of berm curb was laid during 1972 by Public Works employees. 
Also, all sidewalk construction is performed by the Public Works force. 

WATER MAIN EXTENSIONS AND OTHER 
WATER DEPARTMENT PROJECTS: 

*iSummit Estates, plus five (5) hydrants. 
*0. G. Poor: service for fire sprinkler system installed. 
*General Glover House: service for fire sprinkler system installed. 
Puritan Lane: both sides (from 90 Puritan Lane to Puritan Road) and 

from Charlotte Road to Puritan Lane. 
Little League Field: sprinkler system installed. 
High School: new water service for fire sprinkler system installed. 
*Vinnin Square: system installed for three (3) fire sprinklers in Shopping 
Center. 
* paid by owners. 

The contract was awarded for the construction of a new Standpipe in 
the amount of $325,000. The new standpipe will have a capacity of 3.5 mil-

lion gallons, and will be located in the area of the old pipe. Once the new 
standpipe is operational, the old one will be razed. Design of this standpipe 
was done by Fay, Spofford & Thorndike, Inc., Engineers, Boston, Mass., in 
close cooperation with the Board of Public Works. Work started in January, 
1973. 

Five (5) hydrants were replaced because they were broken. 

Major water breaks were repaired in Paradise Road, Humphrey Street 
and Linden Avenue by personnel in the Water Division. 

PARK 

Resurfaced: Basketball Courts at Phillips Park and Windsor Avenue; 
Tennis Courts at Jackson Park and Phillips Park. (Additional floodlights 
are being planned for these areas). 

Resodded: Little League Field. This project was done by Public Works 
employees and the only cost to the Town was for sod. 

Approximately seventy-five (75) of a large caliper shade tree were planted 
to replace the trees removed and also to beautify other streets in Town. 

A program of removing Dutch Elm Diseased Trees was carried out during 
the year, as well as spraying for Oak Leaf Skeletonizer. 

ENGINEERING 

The personnel of the Engineering Division consists of the Town Engineer, 
Assistant Town Engineer, two Senior Engineering Aides and a Student En- 
gineer. The Student Engineer is from Northeastern University, and is enrolled 
under the Division of Cooperative Education. 

The majority of Public Works projects which require engineering are 
handled by the Town's Engineering Division with the exception of a major 
project such as the design of the new standpipe; in this case, the Board of 
Public Works hires a Consultant Engineer. However, before any construction 
starts, all plans must be reviewed by the Engineering Division and approved 
by the Board of Public Works. 

DUTIES PERFORMED BY THE ENGINEERING DIVISION: 

Design and inspection of all sanitary sewers, storm drains and water 
main extensions; cemetery expansion; layout and surface grading of streets 
and sidewalks; general land surveys of Town properties; drafting of plans; 
preparation of estimates both cost and quantity for general Public Works 
projects; drawing of construction contracts and specifications; furnishing 
information from Town Records for sub-divisions; keeping Assessors Plates 
up-to-date. All Storm Damage Projects were estimated and inspected by the 
Engineering Division in order that Federal Funds could be allocated to the 
Town. 

RECREATION 

Programs for handicapped and retarded children, sailing, Pop Warner 
football, winter and summer basketball, teen-age fitness, tennis, swimming, 



106 



arts and crafts and a general recreation program for children from four 
years old to High School age were carried out at all parks during the eight 
to ten week period during the summer months; also, lifeguards were pro- 
vided at Eiseman, Wales and Kings Beaches — all sponsored and supervised 
by the Board of Public Works. 

During the year, a Recreation Commission was established and will 
handle this program in the future. However, the Public Works Department 
will continue to maintain the parks and other recreation areas; also, to 
maintain supervision to the effect that no use which will damage the parks 
will be allowed. 

TOPICS — "Traffic Operations Program to Improve Capacity and Safety." 

The Town entered into a contract with the Federal Government in con- 
nection with a 100% Federally (no Town money) funded program known 
as TOPICS (Traffic Operations Program to Improve Capacity and Safety) 
to help alleviate the traffic problems in the Town. 

PROJECTS FUNDED BY TOPICS (these projects are 100% Federal 
funded — there is no Town money involved). 

Railroad Abutments removed and landscaped on Bradlee Avenue and 

Walker Road (90% complete). 
Island constructed at intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Shepard 
Avenue. 

Intersection widening and improvements of Danvers Road and Essex 
Street (to be completed in spring of '73). 

STORM DAMAGE PROJECTS — Federally funded 

Fish House: Wood and asphalt shingles replaced on exterior; screen 
doors repaired and/or replaced; roof repaired (100% Federal Funds 
— no Town Funds).

MISCELLANEOUS 

The repair of Hawthorne Brook from Essex Street to Humphrey Street 
will be undertaken in the spring of '73 by the developers of the Vinnin

TO THE CITI'ZENS OF SWAMPSCOTT 

Ladies and Gentlemen: 

The year 1972 has been a busy one for your School Committee Collective 
bargaining, budget preparation, and working with the Superintendent to im- 
prove our educational goals and provide adequate facilities has been a chal- 
lenge for us during this period of tight economic conditions. 

The Committee was engaged in collective bargaining activities from early 
in the year to late spring and again for several months in the fall. Numerous 
meetings were held with the teachers, nurses, custodians, and cafeteria 



110 



workers in an attempt to reach a fair and equitable agreement for all con- 
cerned. 

The preparation of the school budget in 1972 presented a new problem 
for the Committee and Superintendent in that it was necessary to budget 
for an 18-month period instead of the usual 12 months. Educational require- 
ments, maintenance needs, and thei other items that make up the budget 
had to be carefully reviewed to be sure the extended period of time was 
covered. As in the past all town officials and the public were invited to at- 
tend the budget meetings, so that they might better understand the many 
items that make up the total budget. 

In 1972 the School Committee sponsored an article in the Town Warrant, 
which was voted on and approved by Town Meeting, to establish a School 
Building Needs Committee. Because it is the responsibility of the Town to 
provide adequate facilities for all children, it was felt that an independent 
group appointed by the Town could best evaluate the building and facility 
needs of the various schools. The School Committee has been very concerned 
with the overcrowding in the schools. However, during this interim period 
their concern has been somewhat alleviated by the successful programming 
and scheduling carried out by the administration and staff. 

The year 1972 saw the completion of the first full year of the Open 
Campus program conducted at the high school. It is a pleasure to report 
that this program has been very successful and that it has not only provided 
a new challenge to our students but has also given them the opportunity 
to prepare for the future at the secondary school level. Its success can be 
attributed to the cooperation of the administration, staff, students, and the 
community in their determination to see a new, innovative experience become 
a reality in today's ever changing educational process. 

These are but a few of the accomplishments of the Swampscott Public 
School system over the past year. The Superintendent's report, which follows, 
presents more detailed information on the progress and activities of the 
school system during 1972. 

As we enter the third year of the 70 's, we see many challenges that lie 
ahead of us. Education in today's society is changing rapidly, and it is a 
change we cannot ignore. There is much to be done in the area of school 
development, and the Committee appreciates and seeks the continued support 
of all the townspeople in carrying out the objectives of the Swampscott school 
system. 

Yours respectfully,

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the members of the Swampscott School Committee and 
the citizens of Swampscott: 

I am pleased to submit my annual report as Superintendent of the 
Swampscott Public Schools. 

To provide an educational program which is academically sound and 
which will help our children to become adults who can function in the 21st 
Century is our first priority. We seek to maintain a standard of quality which 
reflects knowledge of how children learn as well as regard for the importance 
of content. 

Th? year 1972 brought many changes and events. As space does not per- 
mit to enumerate them all here, we mention the most important in this report. 

PROFESSIONAL STAFF 

The quality of education that Swampscott provides depends, for the most 
part, on the excellence of the teaching staff. These professional personnel are 
prepared for its diversified and complex tasks through continuous study, ex- 
perimentation, and in-service growth. Swampscott is indeed fortunate in 
having an exceptionally competent and dedicated staff. 

We extend our sincerest appreciation and a deep sense of gratitude to 
the many fine, able, and dedicated staff members who have retired this past 
year from the Swampscott School Department. These people have contributed 
much to the educational growth and development of many young people of 
our community. They have provided a first-rate public service and will be 
missed by all Swampscott residents.

CURRICULAR CHANGES 

We will continue to strive to provide for individualization of program 
and opportunity in order that each child's uniqueness and potential can be 
recognized and nurtured. In this regard we realize that children are different 
in their interests, needs, and abilities and that these differences change as 
children develop. 

In order that our goals be achieved and that effective change be imple- 
mented, long-range planning of the curriculum and ongoing evaluation of 
its effectiveness must be made. As a result, a constant and systematic review 
and evaluation of our present programs will continue to be a major concern. 

A brief sampling of curriculum events and activities which have con- 
tributed to our success in achieving our goals during the year 1972 is as 



114 



follows: Concern for tha individual student is being matched by program 
options and course alternatives at both the high school and junior high school 
level. Elective programs on a semester basis in English, science, and social 
studies had their first full test in the high school this past year, and they 
were found to be more nearly directed at student interest and needs than 
former traditional full year courses. In an attempt to provide an innovative 
approach to junior high school education, the traditional seven period day in 
a five day week was replaced by a six day, six period rotating schedule. 
Course time periods and numbers of meetings per cycle have been increased. 
Such changes have resulted in several improvments. Many traditional courses 
have been broken down into smaller, more intensive segments which give 
students more selectivity in their programs. In addition, more relevant courses 
have also been offered in the social studies, science, and industrial art areas. 
Opportunities such as President and Election in Social Studies; Physical and 
Historical Geology, Ecology, and Oceanography in Science; Electronic Kit 
Assembly and Small Engines in Industrial Arts; and Minorities in America 
are only a sample of the courses which our students are now studying. Par- 
ticularly successful at the high school level have been the senior social studies 
quarterly courses which have offered a wider variety of current topics and 
issues for in-depth study and understanding. Remedial courses were also 
given special emphasis in the math department in an effort to assure an 
acceptable standard of achievement by all students. Man and His Environ- 
ment, a new science course for noncollege bound sophomores, and Selected 
Subjects in Biological Science for advanced senior students represented a 
Science Department effort to meet the particular needs of some of its stu- 
dents. Wider use of various media including films, tapes, charts, and pro- 
jectiles in the Business Department have proved a successful attempt to 
enliven the routine skill building courses. 

As a result of the very favorable reaction of students and parents to 
last year's elementary school camping program, a more advanced experience 
was organized for ninth grade students this year. In October, forty-two 
ninth graders with four of their teachers spent three days and two nights 
hiking and camping in the Presidential Range of New Hampshire's White 
Mountains. As a result of the trip, in addition to the ecological and scientific 
experience, each member of the group became more aware of himself, his 
relationship to his group, and his role in this community of students and 
teachers. 

Swampscott High School students are helping teachers and students at 
the elementary level in a variety of ways this year: Tutoring individual stu- 
dents in reading, mathematics, and spelling and assisting teachers in the 
preparation of visual aids. An industrial arts workshop for Machon's fourth, 
fifth, and sixth graders is being held. High school students work under the 
supervision of Peter Gill, while tools for the workshop were donated by the 
Upper Swampscott Improvement Association. 

"Man: A Course of Study" has enjoyed such a success with Clarke School 
students that the program has now been expanded to the Hadley and Machon 
Schools. 

A new science program entitled Science Curriculum Improvement Study 



115 



or (SCIS) has been introduced at the first and second grade levels. Un- 
graded, sequential physical and life science programs for elementary school 
youngsters have in essence turned the classroom into a laboratory. 

A new reporting system at the primary and intermediate levels now 
provide students and their parents with a more reliable and valid measure 
of student progress. Traditional letter grades have been eliminated and a 
comprehensive check list, scheduled parent-teacher conferences, and parent- 
teacher guidelines for interpreting the new system have been developed. 
In the belief that children should be motivated from within than by grade 
rewards; that each youngster's self -worth should be enhanced; that indi- 
vidual differences should be acknowledged in terms of abilities; and that the 
social stigma of "on or below grade level" performance should be eliminated; 
the pupil progress reporting system has been developed. 

At the intermediate level at Stanley School, a gradual shift to a modified 
homogeneous grouping which combines the best features of heterogeneous 
and homogeneous groups has begun. One of the most significant develop- 
ments at Stanley has been the formation and work of the Diagnostic Pre- 
scription Center (DPC) group. Designed as an adjunct to the library, the 
DPC has been set up by several staff members to house reading and math 
learning materials in both software and hardware categories as well as di- 
agnostic testing instruments. The center should become "an academic pharma- 
cy" where a student who is experiencing difficulty in a basic skill might 
go to be tested. Next he would have a "prescription" written out for him 
based on those test results. The "prescription" would then be filled by dis- 
pensing materials to him from the center which he could work on in his 
classroom, a special class, or wherever it is convenient. 

The major emphasis in the Music Department this year has been at the 
elementary level. Since a great deal of the program involves developing a 
skill, this is where it should rightfully be placed. The beginning instrumental 
program has doubled and for the first time the drop-out rate for these stu- 
dents is nihil. 

Interest has continued in the Saturday Boston Symphony Concerts and 
to this we have added the Boston Ballet program with some two hundred 
students participating. In addition, many outside artists have been brought 
into the system at various times for performances which have helped to 
increase musical awareness. Exchange concerts were added to the junior 
high school program as well this year. 

A curriculum workshop was held this summer to revise the existing 
Education for Living curriculum in grades seven, nine, and ten and to design 
a course of study for grades eight, eleven, and twelve. Both objectives were 
fully realized and now a revised and fully up-to-date course of study for 
grades seven through twelve has been produced. It is expected that over 
200 copies of this curriculum guide will be disseminated throughout the Com- 
monwealth and the United States. 

The second major summer activity was the Education for Living 1972 
Summer Institute which was held at Shaw Junior High School. The Institute 



had as its purpose to provide quality in-service training in the fields of 
drug, sex, alcohol, and family life education. The focus of the group's con- 
cern were these four areas: (1) human relations, (2) subject matter content, 
(3) behavioral objectives, and (4) development of learning activity packages. 
The main objective of the Institute was to prepare teachers with a variety 
of specialties to be Education for Living teachers. An indepth evaluation 
of the program is now in progress. 

Our CURA (Culturally Reinforced Remediation in Reading and Arith- 
metic) program has once again been a great success. Began in 1966 under a 
federally funded Title I Grant, CURA enrolled one hundred students in its 
1972 program. 

The first full year of Open Campus was completed in 1972. An exhaustive 
study of the program resulted in a series of recommendations for its con- 
tinuation, including changes in administrative controls of behavior, fewer 
X periods, and the appointment of additional clerical help. Approximately 
85% of students and staff give full cooperation to the plan indicating a 
measure of success sufficient to warrant its further development. 

The second half of 1972 saw a movement away from the mini course to 
close involvement between teacher and students in tutorial, extra help, and 
make-up sessions during the X period. More and more of our students leave 
the building every day on special work and study assignments either as off- 
campus volunteer activity or as an extension of the work of their classrooms. 
The concept of expanding the horizons and the walls of our school out into 
the greater community is taking a firm hold in our development. 

However, no longer can we accept the belief that teaching and learning 
only take place within the four walls of the classroom. It is only fair to say, 
though, that not all teachers support or accept this trend. 

Some initial planning has begun in broadening the services of our Guid- 
ance Department into areas of vocation training and career development. 
A reorganization of staff assignments and responsibilities will be aimed at 
a more equal sharing of guidance services by all of our students. 

In conclusion, as I have indicated before. "We are constantly searching 
for ways of improving the educational environment of our children through 
every available means at our disposal. We would be most happy to accept 
your suggestions in helping us reach our goal — the best possible education 
Swampscott can afford." 

Respectfully submitted,

PUBLIC LIBRARY TRUSTEES 

The Honorable HENRY R. MAYO, JR., Chairman 

MRS. RUTH M. BARRY, Secretary GEORGE J. ARROLL, M.D., 

(Resigned, April 17) 

MR. KERMIT DOWNS 

During 1972 the renovation of the library has continued, using funds 
appropriated by the 1971 Town Meeting. Waterproofing of the false chim- 
neys was completed, Interior painting of the foyer, Main Reading Room, 
Baldwin and Children's Rooms as well as the auditorium and staff room 
was completed in early spring. New lighting was installed in the Reading 
Room and the Baldwin Room and carpeting laid in Children's Room, Baldwin 
Room, foyer and office space. Additional shelving was installed in the Chil- 
dren's Room. A sign, SWAMPSCOTT LIBRARY, in stainless steel letters 
was attached to the west side of the building, and the installation of a fire 
detection system ordered by the town was completed. 

The Addenda Gallery, established in the spring as an autonomous art 
gallery under direction of Mrs. Betty Ann Downs, has brought a series of 
professionally exhibited shows to the library auditorium. These included a 
Town Show, work of North Shore artists, the collection of an anonymous 
local resident, and Polaroid's Photo vision '72. Many hours of volunteer energy 
made the Addenda Gallery a great asset to the library during the year, 
bringing summer visitors as well as local art lovers. 

The Ruth Robinson Blodgett Memorial collection of circulating art was 
established in the spring and currently twenty framed pictures are available 
for 4 week loan. 

The Friends of the Library under Kermit Downs followed by Mrs. Pas- 
quale DiGiulio as presidents have contributed much to the year's achievements. 
Their gift of a 16 mm sound projector and table have made possible the 
establishment of regular film programs at the library. Since April films 
have been shown on Wednesday afternoons. Then a group of high school 
students, The Funambulist Consortium, asked to select films for a Tuesday 
evening program which has welcomed people of all ages, and currently a 
series of art films has been shown on Thursday evenings under auspices 
of the Addenda Gallery. 

With added activity involving more than 200 films borrowed and viewed 
by over 1,000 people, an average daily increase in circulation from 319 to 
335, an increase in the number of records circulated from 417 to 1330 during 
the year, increased inter-library loan activity and reference work, as well 
as extra work involved in cleaning the library after spray painting, money 
for staff salaries was insufficient to continue operation on a 63 hour week. 
In November library hours were cut back to a total of 42 a week for the 
balance of the year. Volunteers from Friends of the Library and town resi- 
dents came to our aid and we publicly thank the many who have filed, shelved, 
mended, run the projector and catalogued to help us through a difficult period. 



118 



Personnel changes during the year included the appointment of Mr. 
Kermit Downs as Trustee to fill the unexpired term of Dr. George Arroll 
who resigned on April 17, 1972, and the appointment of Mrs. Jean Potter 
as Librarian on resignation of Mrs. Naomi K. Feinburg, Co-Librarian in May. 
We feel the team of Trustees, staff, part-time help, high school pages and 
volunteers, all aided by Mr. Angelo Losano, have made the library a more 
community-involved service this year. 



BOARD OF HEALTH

KENT F. MURPHY, C.H.O., Health Officer 

The roll of the Board of Health is changing, however our constant charge 
is that it act as the catalyst in coordinating health planning and programs. 

"The Board of Health received 131 death certificates of Swampscott resi- 
dents resulting in a crude death rate of 9.04 per 1,000, Last year we received 
125. The average age at death was 73.5 years, this year and the five year 
average is 73.9 years. 

There were 114 Births, 5 of which were premature a decrease of 5 births 
as compared to last year. 

Disease of the Heart and Circulatory System continue to lead the causes 
of death with 82 followed by Cancer 25, Respiratory System 12, Gastro In- 
testinal 7, Accidents 3, Glandular System 1 and Genito Urinary 1.

A high incidence of Chicken pox and Strep Throat was experienced this 
year. Better reporting and testing facilities are attributed to the incidences 
of Strep Throat. Vaccines are available for German Measles, Measles, Mumps, 
Whooping cough and Polio and as a result of these Vaccines we had four 
(4) cases of German Measles, and no Measles for seven (7) years. Eight 
(8) years without Whooping cough and (16) sixteen years without Polio. 
This just did not happen but was a result cf constant effort by the Medical 
Professions, Public and Private Health Agencies and concerned parents. 

The School Health program was conducted at St John School with 301 
and Hillel Academy with 119 children who continue to be under the super- 
vision of the Health Department which also includes vision and hearing 
testing, health supervision and health counseling. 

In cooperation with Mrs. Phyllis Connolly, R.N. and Mrs. Amy Burk, 
R.N., Mrs. Sylvia Mansfield, R.N , our Public Health Nurse, have periodically 
reviewed the records of all students in Swampscott public schools and have 
upgraded records by immunizing upon authorization of the parents 

A Tuberculosis Testing Program was conducted in the Kindergarten of 
all schools and Grade 9 of the Shaw Junior High, as well as all children 
new to tha Swampscott school system who have not been Tine Tested within 
the current year. A total of 427 were tested with no positive reactors found 

The State Public Health requires all teaching personnel and those with 
the school system to have either a Tuberculin Test or Chest X-ray every 
three (3) years for Certification. This department cooperates with the School 
Department to accomplish the necessary requirements by administering the 
Tuberculin Test and making appointments for Chest X-rays through the Lynn 
Regional Tuberculosis Clinic, Lynn City Hall. 

126 persons have been certified by Tine Testing and 9 had Chest X-rays. 

Swampscott has been designated as a low risk area for Tuberculosis, one 
(1) case of Tuberculosis was reported during the year 1972, follow-up is 
maintained for a!l cases active, quiescent, or inactive and their contacts. We 
are bordered by two high risk areas, Lynn and Salem, therefore vigilance 
is necessary. 

Our Dental Health in all Schools, Kindergartens through Grave VI in- 
clusive continues with Dental Inspections twice a year. There has been a 
noticeable reduction of dental defects. Dental education is presented by Mrs. 
Phyllis Connolly, R.N. who regularly presents visual aids and materials 
designated to stimulate interest in better dental health, 

Dentists assisting the Health Department in the Dental Program are 
Paul J. McNeil, D.D.S., Clement Schoenbeck, D.M.D. and Charles Lynch, 
D.M.D. We are grateful for their time and efforts in the dental health pro- 
gram. 

The Board of Health conducts the Well Child Conference at the Fellow- 
ship House, First Church Congregational, Swampscott, the last Tuesday of 
each month. Dr. A. A. Brown is the attending physician, Mrs. Sylvia Mans- 



120 



field, R.N. Public Health Nurse, ably assisted by Volunteers, Mrs. Nelson 
Darling, Jr. and Mrs. Robert Mclnerney. The average attendance is 14. 
Parents of pre-school children are encouraged to attend as this free service 
is to insure medical supervision including necessary immunizations. 

The annual fall Rabies Clinic was conducted for the 51st consecutive 
year. Of the 1,046 dogs licensed, 578 were inoculated against rabies, 105 dog 
owners reported having their dogs done elsewhere. There were 62 dog-bites 
of which our Veterinarian Arthur Barry, D.V.M. quarantined 52 dogs as a 
result of bites. There were 12 other animal bites and 13 dog-bite incidences 
from out of Town dogs. Dog-bites decreased by 1 this year over last. 

From last report the Treatment Plant is nearing completion and hope- 
fully will be in operation soon to abate the pollution to our shores. 

We would again like to take this opportunity to compliment the Board 
of Public Works, its Superintendent Mr. Donald Huston and the men of Pub- 
lic Works for their exemplary work installing sewers in unsewered areas 
and stretching the funds provided A progressive sewerage and drainage 
program is an absolute necessity tc eliminate the long standing health 
hazards. 

The Mosquito and Noxious Weed program was conducted this year ap- 
plying chemicals to control larvae and adult mosquitos both in their breeding 
place and nesting areas. It might be added here that Swampscott withdrew 
from the Essex County Mosquito Control program some six (6) years ago 
and at that time Swampscott was being assessed $3,900.00 for work we were 
doing for $2,260.00. I am quite sure the saving would be much greater today. 

Our contracts of solid waste are up this year and hopefully by Town 
Meeting, we will have new contracts and new directions. We are still at- 
tempting to solve our problem on a regional basis but are not meeting with 
much success. Large incineration plants are going to be very expensive; how- 
ever, at present there are very few alternatives. 

Drainage of Hawthorne Brook and its tributories proved a problem this 
year and it was necessary, along with the Board of Public Works, to recom- 
mend no further building in the Vinnin Square area until the Hawthorne 
Brook is rebuilt. The State Department of Public Works failed to appropriate 
its share of the rebuilding costs placing the Town in a serious position, one 
that would only end in very serious flooding if the Vinnin Square area was 
allowed to be developed without rebuilding the brook. 

This year we collected $3,076 03 for all licenses issued by this department 
and the money was turned over to the Town Treasurer for the General Fund. 

There were 239 Plumbing Permits, 189 Gas permits issued. Mr. James 
J. McCarriston, our Plumbing and Gas Inspector, made the inspections. The 
inspections are made to safeguard the health and safety of the public. 

Food Service and Retail Establishments, Milk and Dairy products were in- 
spected and laboratory tested routinely. A food borne outbreak of Salmonella 
was investigated and as a result of this investigation new regulations have 
been drafted for working controls on food preparation and delivery. It is 



121 



the humble opinion that Swampscott's standards can be compared with any 
other municipality. 

We wish to express our sincere gratitude to John J. Toomey, D.S.C., 
Mr. Colin R. Cameron, R.S. and Mr. Walter Sczerbinski, R.S. for their kind 
assistance during- the five months they acted as Acting Agents for the Board 
of Health. 



PLANNING BOARD 

GLENN W. BARTRAM, Chairman 
JOHN F. MILO, Secretary ALEXANDER B. WAY, JR. 

RALPH L. WILLIAMS LEON J. McENTEE 

The Board advertised and held a Public Hearing at the Shaw Junior 
High School on March 15 at 7:30 p.m. to consider Articles 41, 42, 43, 50, 
51, and 52 in the 1972 Town Warrant. The articles involved proposed changes, 
additions, and clarifications in the existing Zoning By-Laws. 

The results of the Public Hearing and the recommendations of the Plan- 
ning Board were reported at the annual Town Meeting. 

The Chairman reported at the 1972 Town Meeting the article referred 
to the Board by the 1971 Town Meeting. The recommendation of the Board 
this article was deferred pending consideration of Article 50 of the 1972 
Town Warrant by the town meeting members. 

The action of the town meeting found this article unacceptable. 

The Board held nine (9) posted meetings during the year covering rou- 
tine activities, advisory sessions with interested parties, and approval of 
Plans under Section 81 P, Chapter 41 of the General Laws of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts. 

Individual members of the Board met with various committees and with 
other Town Boards as requested, to assist them in the interpretation of the 
Zoning By-Laws.

COMMISSIONERS OF TRUST FUNDS 

ROBERT V. GRIMES, Chairman 
HAROLD R. AUSTIN FLOYD W. WEBSTER 

The Commissioners of Trust Funds are responsible for managing any 
assets given over to the custody of the Town of Swampscott which are in- 
tended to be for the benefit of all the inhabitants of the town. 

The commissioners were active during the year in the supervision of the 
funds, all of which are kept in custody by the treasurer of the town. In 
addition the commissioners reviewed the disposition of such funds. 

The commissioners request that it be brought to their attention whenever 
funds are bequeathed or otherwise given to the town by anyone having 
knowledge of such funds. 

The commissioners extend their sincere appreciation to the various Boards 
and officials of the town for their helpful cooperation during the year. 



TOWN COUNSEL 

TIMOTHY J. DAVERN, Town Counsel 

This report will, I trust, set a new standard for brevity in Town Counsel 
reporting. 

Not because the work load is lessening. On the contrary, it is on the 
increase in an alarming rate. Not only do the various Boards and Commit- 



126 



tees require more attention in the form of opinions, draftsmanship, attendance 
at (regular and irregular) meetings and the like, but actual litigation has 
and probably will continue to increase. 

The past year I have been obliged to represent the Town's interest be- 
fore the Supreme Judicial Court, and on numerous occasions, appeared before 
the Land, Superior and District Courts as well as the Appellate Tax Board. 
To date, the results have been, generally, satisfactory. 

More and more frequent evening, Saturday and Sunday meetings with 
the various Boards and Committees are becoming necessary in order to even 
attempt to adequately respond to the Town's needs. 

It would be impossible to perform the task of Town Counsel without the 
enthusiastic support and cooperation of all the Town Officials and Boards. 
I hesitate, therefore, to single out any one person who has given me extra- 
ordinary aid, but if you should go by the Town Hall late at night or on a 
Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon and see my car in the parking lot, 
the one beside it belongs to Miss Kay Donlon. 

The reason for this, hopefully, short resume is founded in my belief that 
those who take the time to read this report are, generally, already active 
and interested in Town affairs, and thus must, of necessity, know what your 
elected and appointed Town Officials are required to do if Town Government 
is to function. Such persons have already made an evaluation and appraisal 
of the degree of expertise, time and understanding that such officials have 
devoted to their respective tasks. On the other hand, I fear that those who 
have not indicated any such interest in our Town Government care but little 
of "what makes it go or how it growed." 



BARGAINING AGENT - LABOR CONSULTANT 

ATTORNEY THOMAS H. DRISCOLL 

Collective bargaining activity between the town and unions representing 
most of the employees was continuous throughout the year. The activity 
ran the gamut of legal labor-management relations from bargain sessions, 
complaints of unfair practices, informal conferences at the State Labor Re- 
lations Commission, formal hearings before the same commission, grievance 
hearings before arbitration panels, appeals to the courts of the Common- 
wealth, signing of some contracts, and operations under memorandum of 
agreement. 

The important result was that the town provided excellent services to 
its citizens throughout the year. 

During 1972 the Town signed the first collective bargaining contract 
with Local 1576 of the Service Employees International Union A.F.L.-C.I.O. 
representing the employees of the Town of Swampscott Public Library. 



127 



The members of the Swampscott Police Department filed a petition with 
the State Labor Commission to be certified by Local 341 of the International 
Brotherhood of Teamsters in February 1972. The Town was merely an ob- 
server in this matter in spite of the contract with Local 341. After the 
certification an election was held by the members of the police department 
under the supervision of the state labor commission and Local 387 of the 
International Brotherhood of Police Officers was duly certified as the sole 
and exclusive bargaining agent. Due to the change in union bargaining with 
the police employees could not begin until after town meeting. Bargaining 
sessions with Local 387 resulted in signing a memorandum of agreement 
on working conditions in August. 

Negotiations for a collective bargaining contract for 1973 began in late 
September and on October 5, 1972 Local 387 of the International Brotherhood 
of Police presented written proposals to the Board of Selectmen. At a meet- 
ing on October 11, 1972 the Town presented written responses to the police 
proposals. 

On October 18, 1972 Local 387 filed a complaint against the Town of 
Swampscott for failing to meet at reasonable times and places and failing 
to bargain over certain working conditions. 

The Town denied these allegations at an informal hearing before the 
State Labor Commission on October 31, 1972. As a matter of fact the Board 
of Selectmen were waiting at a scheduled bargaining session on October 26 
when the union representatives did not appear. 

The State Labor Relations Commission on January 3, 1973 found that 
the Town did not fail to meet with the union and set down a formal hearing 
on the charge that the Town refused to bargain on shift assignments and 
special assignments of officers. The Town considers these matters to be 
management prerogatives under the jurisdiction of the Board of Selectmen 
and the Chief of Police. The formal hearing on this matter was continued 
by the State Labor Relations Commission on January 25, 1973. 

After the continuance by the State Labor Relations Commission, the 
Town and Local 387 resumed collective bargaining sessions for a 1973 con- 
tract. 

The employees of the Public Works Department represented by State 
Council 41, Local 294 American Federation of State, County and Municipal 
Employees, A.F.L.-C.I.O. worked throughout 1972 under the terms of the 
1971 contract with the addition of the 3.4% pay increase granted all town 
employees by the vote of the 1972 Town Meeting, Continuous bargaining 
has resulted in this bargaining unit becoming the first group of town em- 
ployees to enter into a collective bai gaining contract for 1973. 

Labor relations with Local 1459 representing the Fire Fighters have been 
stormy and involved. A series of grievances brought by the union under the 
contract were heard by an arbitration panel consisting of Malcolm F. Mac- 
Lean, Esq. for the Town, James M. Paulson, Esq. for the Union and Pro- 
fessor Robert L. Stutz of the University of Connecticut, Independent member, 
on January 31, 1972. 



128 



The issue involved hiring at an overtime rate when there was a man 
short on a twelve man shift. 

The Town Bargaining Agent represented the Town and contended that 
the issue was a question of manning equipment and subject to the discretion 
of the Fire Chief. The panel found in favor of the Town. 

Collective bargaining with Local 1459 broke down when the fire fighters 
committee walked out when informed by the Town Bargaining Agent that 
the Board of Selectmen made a final offer of 3.4% for a 1972 contract. 

Local 1459 filed charges of unfair labor practices against the Town and 
a hearing was held before the State Labor Relations Commission on May 9, 
1972. The charges were set down for a formal hearing on August 1, 1972 
at the District Court House in Lynn. 

After a long hearing and a four and one half month delay the State 
Labor Board made a finding in favor of Local 1459. After meetings of the 
Town Counsel, Town Moderator, Town Bargaining Agent, Board of Select- 
men, and Chairman of the Finance Committee, the Town sought clarification 
of the Labor Relations Commission's order. When clarification was received, 
the Town appealed to the Superior Court under the General Laws of Massa- 
chusetts. 

The Town denied the Commission of any unfair labor practices and 
questioned the authority of the State Labor Relations Commission. 

During July 1972 the Town entered into a memorandum of agreement 
with Local 1459 covering all matters not before the Labor Relations Board. 
The Fire Fighters received the 3.4% increase voted to all town employees 
at Town Meeting March 1972. 

Negotiations are now underway for 1973. 

Invaluable assistance and untold hours of trying work have been provided 
during 1972 bargaining by William D. Carlin, Chief of Police; Walter M. 
Champion, Jr , Fire Chief; Donald L. Huston, Superintendent of Public Works, 
and Mrs. Jean W. Potter, Librarian. 

The Board of Public Works, Personnel Board, and the Finance Committee 
have given generous cooperation. 

Chairman Arthur J. Palleschi, Selectman Robert E. Donelan and Select- 
man Richard Chambers, the body charged under the law with the respon- 
sibility to bargain collectively have acted with skill, fairness, and extreme 
concern for the interest of the Town.

$5,191,195 



Amount of Building Fees Collected — $5,234.50 

During this year the first building permit for a multi-family dwelling 
was issued since the revocation of the Tenement House Act. This apartment 
complex constitutes the largest single, commercial enterprise constructed 
within the town in its history. This complex contains 268 living units 

During the year inquiries have been made, hearings have been held and 
plans are in the process of being completed for two additional multi-family 
complexes. These proposed complexes will contain 556 living units. These 
units will be either apartments or condominiums; therefore on the land that 
is presently zoned for multi-family use there will be located approximately 
824 living units. 

The new building code has been a reliable and useful guide for insuring 
safe and sound structures from the point of view of both the occupants and 
in maintaining the standards set by the town. 

The proposed multi-family units will not be completed and occupied for 
approximately 3 years. In that time, or shortly thereafter, the town will 
have an experienced base upon which to consider other zoning proposals 
which contemplate multi-family usage. An additional consideration prior to 
any further re-zoning might be the impact and influence on our town govern- 
ment and policies of multi-family living complexes. 

In addition to the proposed dwelling complexes an extensive multi-store 
business center is in the advance planning stage, to be located in Vinnin 
Square on the land commonly known as the driving range. This complex will 
greatly increase the traffic flow on Paradise Road and a traffic flow control 
pattern will be required to minimize traffic congestion and hazards. Further, 
with recent amendments in environmental legislation, plans for projects now 
proposed, or future projects, will now have to include added ecological con- 
siderations. 



131 



There were a large number of private swimming pools installed during 
the past year. The number of these pool installations may be expected to 
decrease in the years to come because of the completion and operation of 
the sewerage treatment plant. It is hoped that this plant will eliminate the 
polluted condition of the salt water swimming areas. 

During the year hearings of the Board of Appeals were attended and 
meetings of the Building Code Advisory Committee were called to consider 
variations of the Building Code provisions. 

Required Local, State and National reports were filed and the finances 
of the department were accounted for. 

As the town's fence viewer and smoke inspector all inquiries and com- 
plaints were investigated and appropriately acted upon. 



DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL DEFENSE 

FORREST E. MASON, JR., Director 

The Swampscott Civil Defense Organization continues its training pro- 
gram for the Auxiliary Fire, Police, Rescue Squad and Communication De- 
partment so that in time of emergency these units will be prepared to help 
our regular town departments. 

The men who train for these emergencies are all volunteers and they 
deserve recognition one and all. 

During the past year, Albert W. Lalime, the founder of our Rescue Squad 
passed away. His tireless efforts to build this squad will be remembered for- 
ever by our organization. I want to thank all of the members and their 
families for all that they have done for our town. 

As I have stated so many times, the home is the basic unit of the com- 
munity and the basic unit on which protection of life and property must be 
built. Swampscott Civil Defense looks to you the people of our town, to take 
an active role in protecting your home. No one else can do that job for you. 

A few steps for family civil defense are as follows: 

1. Have at least one member of your family take a Red Cross First Aid 
Course. This should be a must. 

2. Have at least a week's supply of canned goods and juices for each 
member of your family. 

3. Have a "Planned Action" with your family so that each member will 
know what to do in case of any natural disaster. 

4. Make sure your portable radio and flashlights are in good working 
condition. 

Long man hours have been spent in maintaining our equipment, attend- 



132 



ing drills, and redecorating the interior of our headquarters. I am deeply 
grateful for all that has been done by these volunteers. 

I am also grateful to the Board of Selectmen, to the Chief of the Fire 
Department, the Chief of Police, the Department of Public Works and all 
other town departments who have done so much to help Swampscott Civil 
Defense.

Leash Law hours are 7:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. on leash and 10:00 P.M. 
to 7 :00 A.M. controlled by owner. 

I would like to thank all departments for their cooperation this past year. 



FIRE DEPARTMENT 

WALTER M. CHAMPION, JR., Chief 

During the year of 1972 this Department answered a total of 757 calls. 
Of these calls, 36 involved Building Fires, 33 involved Automobiles and 12 
calls were for Medical Aid. There were also 3 calls for emergency assistance 
in removing persons injured or trapped in automobile accidents. 

APPARATUS 

All of the apparatus is in relatively good condition. Two of our present 
engines, are from a fire department status, old in length of service. Serious 
thought must be given to replacing these engines in the near future. I am 



133 



grateful to the citizens of the Town for providing- this Department with good 
apparatus and equipment which is an important factor for performing effi- 
cient operations. 



FIRE DRILLS AND INSPECTIONS 

Fire drills were conducted at all schools during the year. I was pleased 
that the students were well trained and it is a credit to the faculty that 
supervises them. 

All mercantile, public buildings, business buildings and other buildings 
permitted by law were inspected. Inspection of property is a valuable branch 
of the fire service and any citizen who desires to have their property in- 
spected by this Department may do so by calling Fire Headquarters, 595-4050. 

FIRE ALARM SYSTEM 

During the year the Fire Alarm System was accorded regular main- 
tenance and necessary repairs were performed, immediately, to keep it in 
good condition 

PERSONNEL 

During the year, the Fire Department added new personnel to this De- 
partment, caused by vacancies created by retirements, resignations, death 
and implementing the 42 hour work week. 

The following personnel were promoted or appointed as indicated. 

Fire Captain Roy N. Johansen, promoted August 18, 1972. 
Fire Fighter Daniel W. Champion, appointed January 14, 1972. 
Fire Fighter Michael R. Champion, appointed August 4, 1972. 
Fire Fighter Richard L Jacobs, appointed August 4, 1972. 
Fire Fighter Francis H. Maitland, Jr., appointed August 4, 1972. 
Fire Fighter David D. Fessenden, appointed November 24, 1972. 
Fire Fighter Robert R. Dube, appointed December 22, 1972. 

During the year the Fire Department was saddened by the loss of Fire 
Fighter Albert W. Lalime, who died while on duty November 21, 1972. 

Fire Captain James J. Frary retired on September 23, 1972 by reason 
of physical disability. 

Fire Fighter Peter N. Branden resigned from the Department on July 5, 
1972. 

All vacancies in this Department were filled by results of examination 
by Civil Service. 

ATLANTIC HAND TUB 

For the fifth consecutive year the Atlantic #1 has captured the Class "B" 
Championship. Since 1968 no other Class "B" machine has come close to the 
performance of the Atlantic #1. 



134 



The past muster season, the Atlantic #1 attended nine league Musters 
and one local Pump Off. The Atlantic #1 placed first in five of the musters, 
second in one muster, third in two musters, and fourth in two musters. We 
were also very pleased to again beat the Gerry #5 of Marblehead for the 
Sixth straight year at our annual pump off. 

The hand tub traveled a total distance of 1250 miles this past year, 
from as far away as Richmond, Maine to East Greenwich, Rhode Island. 

It is again a great pleasure to thsnk the townspeople for their wonderful 
support of their very proud Hand-Tub. 

I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the Board of Selectmen, 
to the members of my Department, to the members of the Auxiliary Fire 
Department, to all Town Departments and to all others who have cooperated 
with the Fire Department during the year. 



FOREST WARDEN 

WALTER M. CHAMPION, JR. 

During the year 1972, no permits for outdoor burning and/or open fires 
were issued by this Department. This is in accordance with recent statutes 
which prohobit same in the interest of air pollution and ecology. As a result, 
this department had no calls for fires involving buildings or property start- 
ing from back yard incinerators or trash fires. 

I wish to thank the citizens of the Town who recognized the gravity 
of the situation and refrained from burning leaves, or other refuse this past 
year. 

This statute will be enforced by the Department anytime it is encountered. 



POLICE DEPARTMENT 

WILLIAM J. CARLIN, Chief 

There were no retirements or appointments in the Police Department 
during the past year. Two vacancies presently exist for permanent patrol- 
men. We have not been able to fill these vacancies during the past year 
as no certifications were available from Civil Service because of a change 
in examining procedures necessitated as a result of a court ruling. 

An entrance examination was held in late September and when the re- 
sults are finalized we will fill the existing vacancies, which will bring the 
department to authorized strength. 



135 



During the year Lieutenants James E. Hanley and Peter J. Cassidy at- 
tended and graduated from a specialized crime scene search training program 
conducted at the State Police Academy. 

Patrolmen Arthur M. Sellers, Jr., Walter B. Lee and Arthur N. Stavro- 
poulos attended and were graduated from the Massachusetts State Police 
Academy.

TRAINING AND EDUCATION 

Special firearms training under the direction of Officer Paul A. Sherry 
is being maintained. 

Fourteen regular officers of the department are now continuing their 
education at local colleges under the educational provisions of the Law En- 
forcement Assistance Act. Four of these officers already have their degrees. 

EQUIPMENT 

The department has acquired new and sophisticated investigating equip- 
ment under special federal funds provided in conjunction with the crime 
scene search training program. 

SAFETY EDUCATION 
In addition to our regular school safety program in 5 972 the depart- 
ment sponsored a Defensive Driving Course for adults at Shaw Junior High 
School early in March. The program was in charge of Lieutenant Peter J. 
Cassidy, Traffic and Safety Officer, and was well attended. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 
Lack of space at the Police Station continues to be a severe handicap 



141 



in promoting greater efficiency in our station operations. The study com- 
mittee appointed by the Selectmen have completed their evaluation and study 
of the needs of the Police Department in regards to expansion of the present 
building and will make their report and recommendations to the Town 
Meeting. I therefore recommend that the Town Meeting accept the report 
of the building study committee and appropriate the necessary funds to 
carry out their recommendations. 

I recommend that the town purchase a new motorcycle to replace a 1966 
motorcycle. 

I recommend that the town appropriate the necessary funds to purchase 
four new ambulettes to take care of necessary replacements during the 
coming 18 month period, 

APPRECIATION 

I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the Board of Selectmen, 
to the members of my department, to the Women Traffic Supervisors, to 
the members of the Auxiliary Police Department, to all Town Departments 
and to all others who have cooperated with me during the year. 



DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS SERVICES 

CHARLES W. DWYER, Director 

Having veterans qualify for federal funds plus the increase in pensions 
and social security benefits have helped significantly to minimize rising costs, 
thus allowing a reduction of about 10% in the budget. The case load and 
some basic benefits seem to be stabilized for the present. Medical charges 
as well as use of hospital and nursing home facilities — which can be sub- 
stantial items in a relatively small budget yet difficult to estimate — will 
determine how close we can stay within allocation. 

Strikes and unemployment have had only a limited effect, the chief costs 
being attributable to disabled veterans under 65 and veterans and families 
over 65. 

With the reduction of men in services some months ago, the return of 
veterans slackened the latter part of the year. 



HARBORMASTER 

CHARLES H. BICKFORD 

I wish to thank the citizens of the town for allowing me to serve for 
the year 1972 as Harbormaster, and especially the Board of Selectmen, for 
entrusting me with this important position. 



142 



The town was indeed fortunate to receive the gift of Mr. James Reilly, 
Mostyn St., a 22 ft. Buehler turbo-pcwer, fiberglass boat, to be used by the 
Harbormaster. 

With the exc silent cooperation cf the Dept. of Public Works, much 
equipment was acquired to outfit the boat for Harbormaster, Police, and 
Rescue work. 

Chief of Folice William J. Carlin assigned Officers Joseph McHugh and 
William McGinn to be trained to use the boat in emergencies when I was 
not available. Fire Chief Miller Champion assigned Capt. Joseph Braccio 
and Junior Clark to be trained also in emergency work. 

I wish to thank Mr. Donald Huston, Supt. of Public Works Dent , and 
a 1 town Depts. for their excellent cooperation, all of whom are aware of 
the need for this type of boat in this area, as the Coast Guard is now one 
hour away from us at Point Allerton in Hull or Gloucester. 

I issued 152 mooring permits, a substantial increr.se from 1971. Sailing 
appears to be on the increase in our harbor Mooring acreage is becoming 
very acute on the North Shore. 

I wish to thank Mr. Louis J. Williams, my assistant, for his help was 
very much appreciated. 

With the 1973 season ahead, and hopefully Blaney Beach will be open 
for bathing, it will be a busy area of the town. 



INSPECTOR OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES 

JOHN F. O'HARE 

During the year of 1972, $429.20 was collected in sealing and adjusting 
fees in Swampscott. 

There were some deletions in equipment in town thus producing a lesser 
amount of revenue than the previous year. 

Periodic inspections and testing of pre-packaged items were made 
throughout the year. 

Consumer complaints were followed up and corrected when required. 

Other services to local residents and groups were rendered when possible. 

Again as last year, I sincerely request all Swampscott residents and 
others to report any violations or suspicions of such regarding my office 
or consumer related items. 

My thanks to the Town Accountant's and Treasurer's offices for their 
continued cooperation as well as the Selectmen and their staff. 



143 



INSPECTOR OF WIRES 

DANIEL C, CAHILL 

I herewith submit the following 1 report for the year ending December 31, 
1972. There were 238 permits issued and $1,152.70 collected. In these permits 
were 3 issued for high rise apartments, 18 permits for new houses, and the 
remainder were issued for repairs and upgrading of present wiring. 

The office hours of this department are 4:45 to 5:30 p.m. daily, Monday 
thru Friday. At this time permits are issued, many questions answered and 
appointments for inspections made. 

Investigations of damaged wiring were made after several house fires. 
Inspections were made after electricians had replaced damaged wiring and 
before it was put into service. 

Several re-inspections were made when work or materials did not meet 
the requirements of the Massachusetts State Code or the By-Laws of the 
Town of Swampscott. 



WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION 

DOUGLAS F. ALLEN, Agent 

During 1972 thirty-eight Workmen's Compensation claims were reported 
including ten involving weekly disability. Payments on these claims and 
previous ones still open from the past amounted to about $12,000. This is a 
small increase over last year in the number of claims but nearly double 
the amount paid due to several previous injuries. 

Fire and Police medical bills totaled about $3,500, a small increase over 
previous years. 

The excellent cooperation of the officials and employees of the town 
in handling these matters is very much appreciated. 



BOARD OF APPEALS 

T. PAUL CORCORAN, Chairman 

KATHLEEN F. WAY CHARLES F. BUCKLAND 

Members 

WALTER T. MUDGE ANTHONY CORSO 

Associate Members 

The Board of Appeals held forty (40) public hearings during the year 
1972. Thirteen were for variances, and twenty-seven were for Use Permits. 

The Board extends its sincere appreciation to the various Boards and 
Officials of the Town, especially Building Inspector John F. Burke, Town 
Counsel Timothy J. Davern, Police Chief William J. Carlin and Fire Chief 
Walter M. Champion, Jr., for their assistance during the year.

QUESTION NO. 1 



Shall Chapter Three, Section One of the Town Charter be amended, as 
recommended by the Charter Commission, by striking out said Section as it 
presently exists and inserting in place thereof the following ? 

Section One. The Board of Selectmen shall consist of three members who 
shall serve for three year staggered terms. Initially, at the annual Town Elec- 
tion in 1973, the voters of the Town shall elect one Selectman for three years, 
one Selectman for two years, and one Selectman for one year. The candidates' 
names shall be placed in alphabetical order on the ballot and the candidate 
receiving the largest number of votes shall be elected for three years, the 
candidate receiving the second largest number of votes shall be elected for 
two years, and the candidate receiving the third largest number of votes shall 
be elected for one year. At each annual Town Election thereafter the voters 
shall elect one Selectman to serve for a three year term. 

Presently the charter provides for three Selectmen who are all elected for 
a one year term. The amendment would provide for one of the three Selectmen 
to be elected each year for a three year term. 



Shall Chapter Three of the Town Charter be amended, as recommended 
by the Charter Commission, by adding a new Section Three thereto, as follows: 

Section Three. The School Committee shall consist of seven members, one 
of whom shall be a resident of and elected from each precinct and one from 
the Town At Large. 

In 1973, and each three years thereafter, the voters of the Town At Large 
shall elect an At Large member to serve for a three year term. 

In 1973, the voters from the Town At Large shall elect from the respec- 
tive residents in each precinct, one member to said Committee. From among 
those so elected, the two receiving the largest number of votes shall serve 
for three years, the two receiving the next largest number of votes shall serve 
for two years, and the two receiving the next largest number of votes shall 
serve for one year. 

At each annual Town Election thereafter, the voters from the Town At 
Large shall elect from each of the two precincts represented by School Com- 
mittee members whose terms are then expiring, a School Committee member 
to serve for three years. 

The present School Committee is composed of five members elected At 
Large for a staggered three year term, two-two-one. The amendment would 
increase the membership to seven and provide that one of same would be a 
resident of and elected from each precinct and one from the Town At Large.

provide for a new position of Executive Secretary/Town Accountant, as sum- 
marized below: 

The Executive Secretary/Town Accountant would have significant tasks 
specifically assigned to him in order to facilitate the work of the Board of 
Selectmen. He would, among his tasks, do all the things presently performed 
by the Town Accountant and Secretary to the Board of Selectmen, whose posi- 
tions would be abolished.

the provisions of General Laws (Ter. Ed.) Chapter 45, Section 14 as amended, 
composed of seven members, all appointed by the Board of Selectmen, one to 
be appointed from each precinct and one to be appointed At Large. The Board 
of Selectmen shall initially appoint the At Large member and two precinct 
members for three year terms, two precinct members for two year terms, and 
two precinct members for a one year term. Thereafter, as their respective 
terms expire, the Board of Selectmen shall appoint succeeding members for 
three year terms. 

The varied and miscellaneous Athletic Programs subsidized totally or 
partially by the Town, including the Summer Recreation Program, which have 
been under the Board of Public Works, in one form or another, have proved 
to be rather cumbersome and not realistically related to the primary function 
of said Board. The proposed amendment would create a Commission to perform 
these functions.

1. Apply a uniform rate or percentage to an individual's federal income tax 
liability; or 

2. Apply graduated rates to an individual's federal taxable income; or 



162 



3. Apply graduated rates to income determined to be taxable under Massa- 
chusetts law. 

The Legislature would also be authorized to provide for reasonable exemp- 
tions, deductions and abatements and make the definition of any term used 
in the state tax law automatically the same as it is under Federal Law.

During the year 1972, many changes were made by the Commonwealth in 
the Election laws. Because it was a Presidential Election year, it was a par- 
ticularly busy year. Our records indicate that two thousand, eight hundred and 
forty-four (2844) changes were made in the current voting list. One thousand, 
three hundred seventy-seven (1377) persons were added to the supplement list, 
six hundred ninety-six (696) persons were removed from the list as either 
having died or moved away, and seven hundred and seventy-one (771) persons 
changed their party affiliation. At the close of registration in October, nine 
thousand, two hundred thirty-two (9,232) persons in Swampscott were eligible 
to vote in the November 7th, 1972 election.

During 1972 the Committee met to consider requests for construction 
materials and/or procedures not provided for by the Building Code. 

During the next year the Committee will undertake a review of the 
Building Permit fee schedule and hopefully will devise a schedule that will 
result in making the yearly Building Department receipts at least equal to 
the department budget.

ROBERT E. DONELAN, Selectman 
ex-officio 



Lacking, as Swampscott seems to do, the battles, massacres, midnight 
rides, retreats and even tea parties which are the stuff of reenactment, 
Swampscott's Bi-Centennial will probably be celebrated less spectacularly, 
but, we hope, no less thoughtfully, than in Lexington or Concord. 

Your Committee is endeavoring to compile an inventory of sites and 
structures of Revolutionary significance in the Town, and will welcome any 
suggestions. Emily Devitt is compiling, with great devotion, a list of Swamp- 
scott residents who participated in the Revolution, and her findings to date 
have been published in an article by Margaret Tatro in the Lynn Item on 
April 19, 1972. Again, any relevant information will be welcome. 

Believing that participation by the students is highly desirable, but 
that the development of a suitable program for them properly belongs to 
the School Committee, we have offered to assist that Committee in any Bi- 
Centennial program it conceives for the schools. 

We note, with grateful appreciation, the sign erected by the Jaycees at 
the entrance to the Town, and the cooperation of the Library Trustees in 
acquiring books relating to the Revolution which we have recommended. 

We are looking for a volunteer to prepare a History of Swampscott 
in the 18th Century, as a continuation of the History of Swampscott in the 
17th Century being prepared by the Chairman of the Committee, ultimately 
to connect with the articles on Swampscott History prepared by the late 
Frank Mansur. 



CONTRIBUTORY RETIREMENT BOARD 

GERARD CARON, Chairman 
ALAN POPE, Elected Member 
KEITH CALLAHAN, Secretary-Ex-Officio Member 

The Board is pleased to report on the highlights of its activities for 1972. 
The Board administered the payments of 87 contributory retirement 



167 



allowances totaling $319,194.02 and 36 non-contributory retirement allowances 
totaling: $149,075.37. 

The book value of the invested funds as of December 31, 1972 was 
$1,256,088.58. 

The source of all of these funds were town employees' contributions. 

The Board purchased $62,943.40 worth of long term utility and telephone 
bonds at an average yield of 7.5%. 

The town appropriated $279,412.00 for the pension fund. 

Charges against the pension fund amounted to $291,444.00 or $12,032.00 
more than was appropriated. 

'There was $57,472.25 in excess earnings on investments after applying 
interest on all employee contributions as required. 

This excess was transferred to the pension fund and will be used to re- 
duce the amount that the town is required to appropriate for pensions. 

There were 9 applications for retirement processed and granted during 
1972. 

The following retired: 

Fireman: James Frary. 

Public Works: Bertha Coraine, Vincent Easterbrook, Austin Mosco. 
School: Emery Doane, Sarah Corcoran, Carl Goodman, Josephine 
Gallo, Marion Dwyer. 

The figure above do not reflect the allowances paid to Vincent Easter- 
brook and Austin Mosco. Their allowances were paid out of the Public Works 
budget. 

A complete list of the General Ledger balances as of December 31, 1972 
is included in the Town Accountant's Eeport. 



GREATER LYNN COMMUNITY 

SERVICE CENTER 
ADVISORY BOARD DESIGNEE 

JOHN F. O'HARE 

For the past year 1972, it was my extreme pleasure to serve as Swamp- 
scott's representative to the so-called Welfare Board. 

During 1972, I attended the regularly scheduled meeting in Lynn and I 
continued to become involved and informed about "welfare" in general and 
its many ramifications. 

As previously mentioned in last year's report, my pursuit of the Swamp- 
scott Housing Authority in adjusting rents at the Veterans' Project is still 
continuing. At this writing, due to a small concession on the part of the 



168 



SHA, part of the problem has been partly resolved with more of a solution 
to follow, hopefully as a result of state rules and guidelines involving 
housing authorities. 

The Greater Lynn Community Service Center has in mind to enlarge 
Swampscott's representation by another member and this I stand in favor 
of doing. 

The Greater Lynn Community Service Center director, Mr. Thomas 
Spirito, and his staff continue to operate in an outstanding way and it is my 
hope to continue in this capacity as long as time allows me. 



RECREATION COMMISSION 

MRS. GORDON S. BOREK, Chairman 
MRS. HERBERT ELLIS, Vice-Chairman and Secretary 
FRANCIS J. CASSIDY RICHARD J. LYNCH 

ARTHUR BISENTI PETER R. BEATRICE, JR. 

HENRY M. CHEEVER 

The Recreation Commission was appointed July of 1972 in conformance 
with the recommendation of the Charter Commission and vote of the Town. 
"The first meeting was held in August for purposes of organization and Mrs. 
Gordon S. Borek was elected Chairman; Mrs. Herbert Ellis was elected Vice 
Chairman and Secretary. 

Through the month of September, the Commission met with Recreation 
Commissions, as well as Recreation Directors, of Salem, Danvers and Mar- 
blehead to learn and to garner information. 

In October the Commission split into three major sub-committees to 
facilitate their execution of their responsibilities, and utilized the help of 
townspeople who had volunteered to serve as members of the Commission. 
Under the leadership of Peter Beatrice, a sub-committee studied the need 
for and duties of a Recreation Director. Martin Goldman and Richard Lynch 
headed a Committee for development of facilities, and the possibility for 
federal funding in this area. They have studied lighting our parks to expand 
their usage. Fred Johnson chaired a committee to propose possible improve- 
ments to the rink at Jackson Park to improve its utilization. Francis J. Cas- 
sidy chaired the sub-committee to prepare a budget. 

The philosophy of this Commission, broadly stated, is to expand Recrea- 
tion, particularly non-athletic, to larger numbers of our citizens of all ages 
The Commission members are of the opinion that the Town's athletic pro- 
grams, through the schools and private efforts, are functioning well and 
serving the purposes intended; and, therefore, wish to reach into other areas 
to expand and improve our program. 

Recognizing the ever-increasing tax rate and the tremendous impact of 
the 18-month budget, the Commission is presenting a budget which is very 



169 



near to the dollar amount currently being spent by the Town for Recreation. 
Further, once the Commission has staff personnel, every effort will be made 
to recoup part of our budget in small fees paid by the participants of some 
of the programs. 

The most important step taken by the Commission is the appointment 
of Donald Hallett as year-round Recreation Coordinator. Mr. Hallett has 
served as our Summer Director for five years, which he shall continue as 
part of his expanded responsibilities. Further, we are asking for Town 
Meeting approval for a part-time secretary. With this minimal staff to 
handle duties formerly handled by personnel in the Public Works Depart- 
ment, we look to gradually improve and expand our Recreation programs. 

We solicit your support, suggestions and help.

The Trustees submit their 22nd annual report. 

Three scholarships, totalling $1200.00, were awarded this year to the 
following: 

$500 — Susan B. Miller, University of Vermont 
400 — Toni Ann Mellace, Salem State College 
300 — Daniel C. Losano, University of New Hampshire 

The Swampscott Veterans of World War II should take pride in noting 
that, to date, their Memorial Fund has awarded scholarships to 38 Swamp- 
scott students totalling $12,700. This amount is more than half of the total 
amount the Town appropriated for the Memorial and as only the income 
from the funds is used, these tuition scholarships will always be available. 

The Trustees held a meeting at the Administration building. 

Town Counsel, Timothy J. Davern, reports that there has been a delay 
in securing the reclassification of the Fund by the Internal Revenue Service. 
The reclassification will eliminate the income tax liability. 

The Trustees received a letter from the Town Counsel for the town of 



170 



Rowe requesting- the information on the establishing and operation of our 
Fund, The Town of Rowe is interested in establishing a scholarship fund 
for the college education of its citizens. The information was given by the 
Chairman. 

The balance in the Fund as of December 31, 1972 follows: 

Charlestown Savings Bank $ 1,772.77 

Community Savings Bank 6,611.75 

Easthampton Savings Bank 6,942.05 

Salem Five Cents Savings Bank 9,566.63 



Total balance $ 24,893.20 

Due the following students: 

Toni Ann Mellace $ 275.00 

Kathleen L. Thompson 175.00 

Glenn A. Messenger 200.00

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

MRS. ESTHER EWING, Chairman 
MRS. MARY POWERS, Secretary 
MRS. CONSTANCE HOLT MR. EDWARD P. HANNON 

MR. ROLAND DUBE MR. PAUL E. LEVENSON 

MR. JOHN MILO 

The Commission started and ended this year with the over-riding con- 
cern for our rapidiy vanishing and least understood natural resource: our 
wetlands, both inland and coastal. After an unsuccessful bid to obtain a 
floodplain zone at town meeting, the Commission instituted a project of 
cataloging and denning, ecologically our wetlands This will be our guide 
in helping us make the proper decisions regarding the implementation of 
our new Hatch Act: the Hatch- Jones Wetlands Act passed by the legislature 
this year and which became effective October 15. The cost of the above study 
will hopefully be partially defrayed by the Ford Foundation. 

The changes in the Hatch Act have brought considerably more authority 
to our Commission and therefore more work. The Commission is now the 
regulatory power for allowing or disallowing permits to fill, dredge, etc. 
under the new Hatch-Jones Act. The able assistance of our new secretary, 
Mrs. Olive Murphy, has been invaluable during the year. 



171 



Environmental education has continued with additional impetus under 
the direction of a new associate member, Mrs. Rita Powell. She has revi- 
talized the Environmental Conservation Corner at the Public Library and 
once again proves how effective the associate members can be. 

Our student associate members have proved their ability again and 
again. This year by establishing the Swampscott Ecology Club at the Senior 
High. One of their activities has been to provide scholarships to environ- 
mentally active seniors through proceeds received from their untiring efforts 
in the field of recycling. After running monthly drives for recyclables, they 
created a "permanent recycling center." This effort brought to the towns- 
people a different kind of solution to the problem of not only how to dispose 
of our solid waste but the possibilities and practicality of resource recovery. 
In a successful drive, they reduced Swampscott's total volume of solid waste 
that now pollutes the Saugus Marshes. This was done with able assistance 
of Mrs. Mary Powers. This project is somewhat in doubt now but the Board 
of Health has indicated that any contract negotiated from now on would 
include recycling. 

Our highly able chairman, Mr. Paul Levenson, stepped down this year 
after a very productive tenure. His assistance will still be called upon by 
our new chairman, Mrs. Esther Ewing, who has taken charge during a par- 
ticularly active time. Mr. Robert Ingalls, who has stepped down to an asso- 
ciate level, will still continue to give us his untiring assistance. 

Assistance in the form of $10,700 was received from the Massachusetts 
Dept. of Natural Resources Self-Help Program to help defray the purchase 
price of the Harold King Forest. Rules and regulations regarding activities 
in the Forest have been promulgated by the Commission and work on a 
trail system continues. 

Once again the Commission would like to thank the Board of Public 
Works for their continuous cooperation and help, for in most matters of 
conservation, we have to rely on their fine assistance and they have never 
failed in their response. 



PERSONNEL BOARD 

PAUL E. GARLAND, Chairman 
WILLIAM R. NELSON JAMES E. HANLEY 

GLORIA WEBSTER 
MARGARET CAMERON, Clerk 

In accordance with Section 3 (f) of the Personnel By-laws, the Per- 
sonnel Board herewith submits its thirteenth annual report to the Board of 
Selectmen and to the citizens of the Town of Swampscott. 

During the past year the Personnel Board met with all departments 
and individuals who were interested in talking with the Board regarding 



172 



job classifications and any other personnel matters that come under the 
jurisdiction of the Personnel Board. 

As a result of these meetings, and after careful consideration and re- 
search, the Personnel Board will sponsor several articles in the warrant 
for the March, 1973 Town Meeting. 

The Personnel Board was pleased to welcome two new members — Mar- 
garet Cameron and Gloria Webster, who were appointed by the Board of 
Selectmen and the Town Moderator to fill the vacancies caused by the resig- 
nation of Austin D. Mosco and the death of Edward I. Robinson. 

The Personnel Board expresses its sincere regret on the passing of Ed- 
ward I. Robinson who was a member from 1962-1972 and served as Chairman 
of the Board from 1962 until 1971. 



REGIONAL REFUSE DISPOSAL STUDY 
COMMITTEE 

OTTO W. FRIEDMAN, Chairman 
MELVIN WEINER, Vice Chairman and KENT MURPHY, Secretary 

As Chairman of the Committee on "Solid Waste Disposal" our Committee 
has been unable to come up with a definite solution to date of the Town's 
"solid waste" problem. We find ourselves stymied at this point after attend- 
ing many meetings and seminars at the Federal, County, City and Town 
levels, for the past three years. We are no closer to ridding ourselves of 
this 'sticky mess' then when the Committee was formed at the 1971 Town 
Meeting. We feel that our Board of Health Officials are capable of handling 
any situation that may arise and will deal with this problem, taking advan- 
tage of any proposition offered to the Town for the benefit of the taxpayers. 

There are one or two things we can do. For example: (1) Create our 
own sanitary landfill. (2) Build, operate and incinerate our trash and gar- 
bage, or last, join some other city or town in buying the services of a bona- 
fide 'incineration plant'. 

While recycling has proven practical as well as profitable in other areas, 
we should give this idea serious support on a town wide effort. Time is run- 
ning out for us here in Swampscott and unless there is a definite plan of 
action by our town officials we will be a long time in this dilemma. 

I would like to thank the other members of the Committee for their 
untiring efforts in the town's behalf and being patient with me these past 
three years. As for myself, I would prefer to be relieved from the Committee 
as a whole, at this time.

AD HOC SEWAGE TREATMENT AND DISPOSAL 
FACILITIES BUILDING COMMITTEE 

PHILIP A. BRINE, JR., Chairman 
ROBERT W. SNOW, Secretary 
MARVIN J. BAKER VEEDER C. NELLIS 

JOHN P. THOMPSON 

As of January 5, 1973, the date of submission of the Ad Hoc Committee's 
second annual report, the solid-effluent type disposal plant being constructed 
for the Town is 96.8% completed. In order to arrive at completion, yet to 
be accomplished are the connection of the effluent main from the plant to the 
existing 1 effluent main, final electrical hookups, the running of the diesel 
engine power generator, the finishing of the installation of interior elec- 
trical lighting and final cleanup. After completion a further period will be 
required for the testing and warmup of individual items of equipment, to be 
followed by the diversion of the incoming sewage from the old plant to the 
new. 

Although the date for completion called for in the Contract Documents 
is November 3, 1972, upon the recommendation of the engineering consultants, 
Metcalf & Eddy, Inc., an extension has been granted to February 3, 1973 to 
the General Contractor, because of the fact that, due to the withdrawal of 
the original low bidding sub-contractor for personal health reasons, the 
commencement of work by the successor electrical sub-contractor was delayed 
for three (3) months. 

Also upon the recommendation of the engineering consultant, seeding, 
landscaping and hot top work has been put off until spring 1973 The in- 
terests of the Town in this regard will be protected by the retainage of the 
payment of the amount allocated for this work until it is performed to the 
satisfaction of this Committee. 

There has been to date a total of five (5) Supplemental Agreements 
cover-change orders, the fifth of which is currently being processed for state 
and federal financial grants. Four have already been approved for a total 
80% state and federal contribution and result in a total additional contract 
cost of $28,955.03. The cost to the Town is $5791.01. 

The present total of grant payments received from the Federal Environ- 
mental Protection Agency is $1,554,900 and the Town has received $552,160 
from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Water Resources Commission.

IN MEMORIAM 




Lieutenant- General John C. Chaisson 
United States Marine Corps 



On September 20, 1972, Swampscott lost one of its most distinguished 
sons. Ironically, General Chaisson, a highly decorated combat veteran of 
three wars, died suddenly while exercising in a Pentagon gymnasium. No 
man from this area has ever achieved higher military stature. Until his 
retirement a few weeks prior to his death, General Chaisson had been Chief- 
of-Staff of the United States Marine Corps. 

A feature article in a national magazine once described him as "a Re- 
naissance Man." Professional military officers considered him outstanding 
for his brilliant intelligence and dedication to duty. The men who served 
under him knew him as a courageous leader, loyal and concerned for his 
troops. 

The people in Swampscott will always remember him as the gold medal 
student from St. John School, the Swampscott High Football Captain who 
won the Harvard Club Book, and the Harvard graduate who went off with 
the Marines in World War II. 

Johnny Chaisson was born and brought up on Blaney Street. His parents 
were Joseph and Annie Chaisson, He was one of a large family, and his 
father was well known as a local boat-builder. 



175 



Throughout his school years he was an outstanding scholar and a good 
athlete. He graduated from St. John School and Swampscott High School. 
He graduated from Harvard College with honors in 1939. At Harvard he 
enrolled in the Marine Reserve Platoon Leader's Program. He was a student 
at Boston College Law School and called to active duty in 1940. 

After receiving his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant, he began a brilliant 
career in the United States Marine Corps. 

During World War II he rose to the rank of Major in the 11th Marines
